Projected Lines! Boston Bruins vs. St. Louis Blues

New, comments

Injuries on both sides leave some questions among skaters for tonight's contest.

Billy Hurst-USA TODAY Sports

The Boston Bruins hit the ice tonight against the St. Louis Blues at Scottrade Center. Despite the optional skate this morning, the team will have a bit of a different look following the loss to New Jersey on Tuesday night. With a handful of roster moves in the last few days, it looks like Seth Griffith is joining up with the team, while recently called-up Austin Czarnik will be rejoining the Providence Bruins with Ryan Spooner returning to practice..

Meanwhile on defense, John-Michael Liles has returned to the team after a lower-body injury suffered last week. Dennis Seidenberg however left the team and shipped up to Boston with Connolly, both with undisclosed injuries. Look for Zach Trotman to potentially fill in on the blue line if Liles doesn't return to game action.

St. Louis is dealing with their own injuries as well, many of which have come in the last week or so. The latest victim was Robby Fabbri, who is listed as day-to-day after a cross-check to the neck in Tuesday's game against the Colorado Avalanche, and is questionable for tonight's game.

Jay Bouwmeester (upper-body) and Carl Gunnarsson (lower-body) are also listed as day-to-day, and haven't really begun skating, so they look to be out for the contest tonight. Steve Ott, who has been skating, has no timetable set but a return tonight would be doubtful.
